Dear parents,                                                                                                                                                                                April 2021

We hope you all enjoyed the Spring break, and welcome you back to Stepping Stones. This term we hope to be enjoying some lovely weather, exploring and investigating “all creatures GREAT and small” which will include, among other things, animals in the jungle and on the farm; the life cycles of frogs, butterflies, birds and creepy crawlies!

HEALTH AND SAFETY:

Please help us to continue to keep safe by keeping doors and gates shut, and adhering to our

sun safe procedure, a copy is displayed on the web site www.newlynschool.co.uk

  • Dress child in sensible clothes and shoes and apply sunscreen before coming to Stepping Stones. We will supply a suitable brand of at least “factor30” sunscreen and ask for your written consent if you wish us to help your child re-apply it during the day.

We have sun hats readily available for your child to wear.

Thank you to many of you for your comments, which we have added to their folders, please may we remind some of you, if you have not already done this…Jana has some little forms for you to fill in..

Pupil Premium Update we are continuing to focus on our social skills, whilst promoting our commitment to healthy lifestyles and choices, including healthy eating, healthy moving and healthy tooth care. This term we will also focus on how to prepare for “transition”- the next big step in your child’s life. By now you should have received confirmation of a school placement...if you have any problems, perhaps we could help?
